White Bean Walnut Parmesan Dip

I made some resolutions.  How unique am I?  I decided to put them in writing here so you can hold me accountable!  This way, I can’t a) pretend I didn’t ACTUALLY make that one resolution, or b) quit.  I don’t want you to think I’m a quitter.  How embarrassing.

Are you ready for them?  They have absolutely zero to do with cleansing and everything to do with being joyful and staying sane.

(This is the 3rd post of ours in a row with a list.  Apologies.  When we write lists, we’re excused from the writing convention known as “transitions.”  Those are hard.) (more…)

Roasted Eggplant and Tomatoes with Mint

This is the time of year when I feel guilty posting recipes for brownies and cupcakes and raw cookie dough.  And although those types of posts are sure to surface soon (within the next week I feel like), I’ll go with the healthy flow for now.

Partially because I’m doing this cleanse thingy again, which means that although I love you enough to bake for you without eating it myself, we’re only on day 2 here so I’m trying to fill my brain only with thoughts of leafy greens, coconut water, and herbal tea. (more…)

Cajunlicious Guest Post: Cajun Egg Rolls

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week!  While I’m busy reapplying my sunscreen and pretending I’m athletic enough to run on the beach, Jessica from Cajunlicious is here to tell you about some pretty fab egg rolls.  Cajunlicious + Fleur-de-Licious is pretty much a match made in heaven.  Be sure to check out all the other crazy delicious things on Jessica’s site, as well as her new vegetarian blog, Best of the Veg!

First, I want to extend a HUGE thank you to Hannah at Fleur-De-Licious for inviting me to do a guest post on her blog! Since we are both NOLA girls, I was thrilled when Hannah contacted me to write a cajunlicious guest post! (more…)

Cayenne Caramel Popcorn

Today, March 1st, was a big BIG day.  It was National Pancake Day.  It was National Peanut Butter Lovers Day (and the start of National Peanut Month).  And it was the start of National Nutrition Month.  Pancakes, peanuts, and nutrition are three things that are very dear to my heart.  (If today had also been National Diet Coke Day I probably would have just taken the day off.)

In retrospect, I should have made you some whole grain peanut butter pancakes to honor all three occasions at once.

Oops.  What’s that saying?  Hindsight is always 20/20?

Would you like some Cayenne Caramel Popcorn instead?  (more…)
